Datadog

This is a Crystal library providing an APM tracing client for Datadog.

Installation

  1. Add the dependency to your shard.yml:

    dependencies:
      datadog_trace:
        github: jgaskins/datadog
    
  2. Run shards install

Usage

require "datadog"

Datadog.configure do |c|
  # Define your service
  c.service "my-web-app", type: "http"

  # Define tags you want on every span
  c.tags = Datadog::Span::Metadata {
    "environment" => ENV["ENVIRONMENT"],
    "k8s_pod" => ENV["HOSTNAME"],
    "k8s_deployment" => ENV["HOSTNAME"][/\A\w+-\w+/],
  }

  # You can set up values for where to contact the Datadog agent.
  # These are the defaults.
  c.agent_host = ENV["DD_AGENT_HOST"]
  c.trace_agent_port = ENV["DD_TRACE_AGENT_PORT"]
  c.metrics_agent_port = ENV["DD_METRICS_AGENT_PORT"]
end

Report spans to Datadog APM

tags = Datadog::Span::Metadata {
  "user_id" => context.user.try(&.id),
  # ...
}

Datadog.tracer.trace "my.span.name", resource: "my.resource.name", tags: tags do |span|
  # do work here
end

This can get pretty verbose if you're instrumenting heavily. It might be worth defining a method for it:

def instrument(name, resource, tags = Datadog::Span::Metadata.new) do |span|
  Datadog.tracer.trace name, resource: resource, tags: tags do |span|
    yield span
  end
end

Then your code only needs to call this:

instrument "my.span.name", "my.resource.name" do |span|
  # do work here
end

If most of your span names are the same with different resources, you can instrument it even more easily by setting a default name.

Report Datadog custom metrics

Datadog custom metrics are handled via Statsd. Datadog.metrics is currently implemented as a Statsd::Client.

# Set a value
Datadog.metrics.gauge "my.metric.name", 1, tags: %w[key1:value1 key2:value2]

# Increment or decrement a gauge
Datadog.metrics.increment "my.metric.name", tags: %w[key1:value1 key2:value2]
Datadog.metrics.increment "my.metric.name", tags: %w[key1:value1 key2:value2]

# Set a counter
Datadog.metrics.set "my.metric.name, 1

# Report how long it takes to execute a block
Datadog.metrics.time "my.metric.name" do
  # ...
end

# Maintain a histogram for how long it takes to execute a block
Datadog.metrics.histogram "my.metric.name" do
  # ...
end
